Elle's life falls apart after her mother passes away from ovarian cancer. Her father turns to his work to keep his grief at bay, and her beloved brother distances himself, leaving fifteen-year-old Elle to fend for herself. But just when she thinks that there's nobody left who cares, an unexpected trip to the grocery store, of all places, opens up a whole new world, and the possibility that love and hope, and sometimes even salvation, come when you least expect them, and places can be illuminated where you thought light would never shine.

A/N: Dedicated to my Goodreads girl Ciecie. Thanks for the support and cheerleading; you da bomb! oxox, Danni :)
